Barton Elite Silicon

Post by oberonfoto » Tue Sep 11, 2018 5:55 pm

Just got a Barton Elite Silicon - Black top/Pumpkin Orange bottom - for my C60 Trident Pro. So easy to fit and looks great. Only one wee snag and that was one of the spring bars is a bit on the tight side to get it to lock into the lugs. Have seen a couple more on their web site and I will be buying from them again - Austin Tx to Dumfries took 6-days. :thumbup:

My experiences with Barton Silicone Elite have also been first class. As above, easy to fit, high quality and the two tones look subtle and classy. No problems with lint and fluff, they are a comfortable, totally practical strap for everyday use. I did have a small problem with one strap and Barton replaced it immediately, no question.

My only caveat (nothing to do with Barton per se) for use on the hefty Trident is that it is perhaps a little too thin, the CW rubber is much chunkier and suits better IMHO. On slightly thinner watches, no reservations, great strap.

I just wanted to commend Barton for their great customer service.

I ordered 4 straps from them recently, they arrived when i was on holiday so by the time I got around to looking at them and deciding that I wanted to return them, nearly 4 weeks had passed. I emailed Barton to say I wanted to return 2 of them. The following day I got an email saying no problem, the refund has been processed and to just send the straps back at my convenience with no need for tracking etc. The money indeed was back on my credit card very quickly.

I know the sums of money aren't large, the refund was $45, but nevertheless what a fast response and refunding me on trust is very impressive.
